Belgium - One-day general strike - June 30, 2016

A one-day strike caused disruption to public transport, municipal public services and crèches. Some private sector companies have also been hit by the strike action as have the ports. Trade unions protest against what they call the antisocial measures of the government, in particular plans for a labour reform. The confederation of socialist trade unions proclaimed on the eve of the strike an increase of the minimum hourly wage to 14 euro.
